Small, middle and large scale
One Man is a two-act social satire exploring the mind-set of a murderer wracked with guilt and the mindless soccer hooligan complete with pit bull terrier.
The first piece is a frighteningly macabre re-telling of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart, a short story about a mad man's murderous revenge on a fishy-eyed miser.
Then, in Dog, Berkoff plays both a pit bull and his lager swilling football-hooligan owner, as he exposes the underbelly of British yob-culture - the culture of the pub, obsessive drunkenness, football and xenophobia - where the dog amplifies the insane and undirected energy of its owner.
"The star performance par excellence... For sheer acting virtuosity, nothing else in New York comes close to it." - New York Post
"Berkoff at his best: exciting, inventive and full of theatrical magic. Berkoff's talent can create an entire image from one vocal inflection and an entire narrative from one gesture." - Nine to Five
“His characterisations dominate the stage space” - The Independent
